Kat Von D Painted Love Lipstick - Lolita

The Kat Von D lipstick in Lolita is my first personal purchase. It’s a brand you can’t over look. Bold colors, artistic patterns on casing….something definitely noticeable in store.

Kat Von D Lolita Lipstick

Designed by reality television star Kat Von D especially for Sephora, Painted
Love Lipstick takes Kat's signature lip color, a sophisticated red, and expands
it into a range of smoldering shades, from crimson to blood red. It comes housed
in a deluxe tube with a clear Lucite bottom that shows off the color inside, and
the cap is stenciled with silver roses on matte black—inspired by Kat's favorite

Kat Von D Lolita Lipstick

The color in Lolita is a Mid tone Dusty Rose color with a hint if Pink/beige??? It is a color, which is probably the most safest color in her line. All the other colors are super duper bold. Lolita is very flattering for my warm toned skin and it is very wearable. This color works well with smokey eye looks. I have pigmented lips, so ultra pale nude lips makes me look like corpse. My definition of nude is definitely some ‘colored nude’.

The texture of lipstick is creamy. It gives a matte finish. It is a matte, but not very drying matte. I would not say it gives any moisture to lips, but does not dries it either. The staying power is good. It lasts for good 6 hours. The down side is the smell. Its little waxy. Not dirty waxy, but not a lovely vanilla scent either. The waxy smell is not bothering, so that ok.

Packaging is cool. The casing is nice and sturdy, has a rubbery finish and lovely silver rose pattern on it. The bottom is clear, and actual color is seen through it. The packaging is chic and not at all cheap looking.

At $18 its worth giving a try, especially if you are a fan of bright, bold lips.
